Life is like the ocean!

“Waves will try to knock you down and push you back to where you started, but once you fight through them, the entire ocean is yours!”

Life is like that.  You take three steps forward and you think you are ahead of the game, and then life comes by and smacks you back five steps one day when you’re not looking.

The problem many have, is getting back up again after being pushed back.  Getting up and trying again is no easy feat, especially if you have been pushed back more times than you care to count.  Only, the path to your destiny is full of set-backs and put-downs.  You, have to have this thing called “determination”, even on the days you don’t think you have it in you.

We have all been there.  Life puts us through storms.  Sometimes they are simply a rain shower and pass quickly.  And sometimes they are a hurricane and last far longer than we could ever have imagined.  Only, once you make it through the storm, you are usually not the same person when you started.  You are stronger and wiser, for you have made it to the other side when you never thought you could.

I have a quote that someone gave me years ago, and I read it every morning.  It tells me exactly what I need to hear and I want to share it with you today!

“Never give in – never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense.  Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy!”

– Winston Churchill
